They told me that it was not necessary and that they keep the batteries in their vehicles in the winter while at the factory and stored outside. In fact, the person I spoke to kind of laughed at the thought of doing so as it would be a lot of effort... I inquired why the manual would mention that if it wasnít necessary and he had no response. I mentioned this on this forum previously when someone inquired about it and I was encouraged by another member not to put info like that on this site as it was incorrect...
I don't think it it wrong to put it on the site as long as it is explained that the information is from Pleasure-way and not just stated as fact. Presentation counts
That said, IMO, Pleasure-way has never really been up to speed on lithium stuff. When they first released the lithium in the Chevies a number of years ago, we spoke to the sales guys and the factory rep. None knew anything about them, it appears, because they said they are just like other batteries for use and charging, no special chargers or profiles, no temp things, no storage things, just use. Kind of like Battleborn and others said in the beginning with their drop in. They have been very slow to adapt with changes, so I would take any of their recommendations with a dose of skepticism for sure. That zero degree warning is in the manual because that is what the manufacturers of lithium batteries say is necessary, and I would nearly guarantee if batteries were damaged and failed early because of a cold storage, the first thing they would say is to look at the manual which told you not to. It means very little what any given person tells you if it is not in writing.
